Those Bunz Are So Fuzzi

After waiting for the umbilical cord to fall off, and his circumcision to heel; we have started using the cloth diapers! We decided on a brand named Fuzzi Bunz since we have some good friends that used them for their son just this last year…local expert advice. They are really easy to use: when you remove them, separate the liner from the diaper, toss in the pail, wash in the washer, put them back together, put them on Ezra. The breastfed stool doesn’t need to be washed or rinsed off of the diaper before washing them since it will dissolve in the wash, but when we encounter solid stool we will need to scrap it into the toilet before washing the diapers.

We purchased a ‘starter kit’ with 18 diapers (plus several extras) that included our choices of colors. The small size will last until he is 18 pounds then we will have to order more. Even though the disposables have been really simple (and we will continue to use them as needed, ie: travel, when we forget to do laundry, etc), it certainly has reminded us about how filling they are to the landfills. The primary reason that we chose to use cloth diapers was in the hopes of minimizing Ezra’s environmental footprint, so we are very excited about starting to use them. Today is the first full day of use, so hopefully we will have nothing but good stories to report tomorrow!

    I hope to read glowing reports. As a veteran of old-style cloth diapers for younger siblings, I’ve been fascinated by the variety and apparent ease available these days. It’s exciting to hear of someone I know helping them stage a comeback.
